says president obama. >> the difference between this year and 2011 is the fact that we have made $1.2 trillion in cuts. at the time i indicated that there were cuts that we can sensibly make that would not damage our economy. would not impede growth. >> in a statement, john boehner stood by the efforts to use the debt ceiling as leverage. the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing spending at the same time, he said. the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real and so too are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. >> if you think about the first four years. >> hoary addressed concern that is the new cabinet lacks diversity. of the 16 cabinet positions, only two are women. recent appointments to posts have been white men. the president promised the diversity of his second term cabinet will meet that of his first. >> i would suggest that everybody wait until they have seen all my appointments. who is in the white house staff and who is in my cabinet before they rush to judgment. >> the president respond

years, here's president obama with his arm against a republican, and someone will use that against a certain member of congress. so i don't think we can blame the president for his style. it's just another part of this terrible political gridlock we have. president obama is a warm and engaging man. he doesn't have the charm of a john f. kennedy or ronald reagan, but he's plenty friendly to everybody he meets, including reporters. >> he is, indeed. doug, thanks. i want to play some of the highlights from the presidential press conference. this is really what drove the conversation. it is all about the need for the government to pay our bills. >> to even entertain the idea of this happening, of the united states of america not paying its bills, is irresponsible. it's absurd. as the speaker said two years ago, and i'm quoting speaker boehner now, a financial disaster not only for us, but for the worldwide economy. so we've got to pay our bills. and republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put ame

.s. military, how is the obama administration in this coming up four years going to go after this new al qaeda refuge? these are very remote areas. the u.s. military has very few forces in the region and, look, they are going to need permission of countries to go in there if they are going to go into these places. algeria has made it clear it doesn't want help. and libya is it a country that basically has no coherent national military force, a lot of militias running many parts of libya. so to go after al qaeda, it's a nice set of words but a promise that may be very hard to live up to, wolf. >> certainly will be, barbara. thank you. >>> an american worker at the algerian gas facility tells cnn he escaped on the first day of the siege by islamic terrorists. mark cobb, believed to be a resident of texas, told cnn in a message that he's safe after escaping with some algerian staffers. according to his linkedin pain, he's manager of a joint venture in algeria. >>> other news right now, it was a blunt and chilling confession to the world. lance armstrong admitting unequivocally to oprah winfrey th

english. president obama has promised to dive into an immigration overhaul, as well, this year. >>> well, we've said it before, congress is unpopular, but worse than cockroaches? apparently. new numbers from public policy polling pitted congress against the worst of the worst. they found congress was less popular than brusal sprouts and used car salesman. but even worse, people have a higher opinion of cockroaches, replacement referees and root canals. so, what did congress beat out? lindsay lohan, lobbyists and the kardashians. not very complimentary. but there seems to be one place that people really like washington, at the movies. cnn chris lawrence reports, hollywood's portrayal of washington may be just a little off base. >> maybe they ran out of super heroes or aliens weren't available. >> there are only bad options. it's about finding the best one. >> reporter: hollywood is turning to government analysts to anchor its hit films. >> mia, this is joseph bradley. >> reporter: former cia officers admit the agency virginia headquarters isn't exactly a tourist destination. >> most of wh

president obama, my name is julia. i'm an 11-year-old who lives here in d.c. there are no words to explain how sad i am about the school shooting. even though i'm not scared for my safety, i'm scared for others. i have four brothers and sisters and i know i would not be able to bear the thought of losing any of them. i may not be that into politics, but my opinion is it should be very hard for people to buy guns. the only thing they do is harm or kill and guns should only be in the most horrible event, where others will get hurt if they are not. i know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg you to try very hard to make guns not allowed, not just for me, but the whole united states. my love and regrets, julia. >> that's a very thoughtful letter, julia. why did you decide to sit down and write it? >> well, i was overwhelmed with sadness about the school shooting and knew as one person i couldn't do anything, but i knew that president obama could. so i decided to write this letter hoping that at least he would read it and think of doing something. >> theo, you're the dad. did you

than a handful of races where the nra's involvement made a difference. and they had a really bad year in november. they endorsed only seven senate candidates where they spent more than $100,000 in those races. six of those candidates lost. they spent more money i think on defeating barack obama because he was going to erase the second amendment from the constitution than they've ever spent to defeat anybody before, yet there he was today at the white house behind the podium talking about reasonable common sense gun laws. >> i thought the nra's advertisement lambasting the president for the security around his children was particularly offensive and a new low even by the leadership of that organization standards today. >> you know, we talked to nra members and we talked to gun deal. >> and we poll them. the truth is the average nra member has not been very happy with the performance that they've been seeing out of the nra's washington lobbyists lately. nra members are people who hunt, who want to defend themselves and who want to be left alone, like much of the country. the nra's washi
